    A shower of sparks exploded from the tip of the welder that 17-year-old Mang Sang was wielding as he touched it to one of the metal gears attached to the Workshop School's mobile structure for the Kensington Kinetic Sculpture Derby. "Can you do the other ones, too?"

L&I gets it right with developer of 'potential death trap' | Ronnie Polaneczky

...went up in a blaze; in the worst conflagration – the 2012 Buck Hosiery catastrophe at York and Jasper streets – firefighters Robert Neary and Daniel Sweeney were killed when a wall collapsed...

Back in January, the city shut down one of Damaghi’s buildings – a warehouse with 50 business tenants at 2066 West Hunting Park Ave. – after finding that its many fire, plumbing and building violations presented “a threat to life and safety.”

And this week, the city took Damaghi to court for more than 100 violations on his other properties, including yet another warehouse – at 3039 B St., that L&I described as a “potential death trap” because of its “trove” of fire-code violations and lack of zoning and use permits.

    L&I gets it right with developer of 'potential death trap' | Ronnie Polaneczky
    Attorney Edward Robson would like me to "keep in context" the umpteen L&I violations of David Damaghi, his real-estate developer client. "He didn't buy these buildings and run them into the ground," says Robson of the 17 buildings and ten parcels of Philly land that New Yorker Damaghi owns through seven different LLCs.
